Hello All! I just wanted to take a second to introduce myself and say thank you for all the great information out here on these boards. I have been looking at the boards for months now as I was contemplating a new boat (and the first I owned myself). I have spent years as First Mate on my father and other's boats but never had owned my own. This was the year that I decided to take the plunge. I was initially looking at the R227 but eventually convinced myself and the much harder job, my Wife that the Robalo 247 was the perfect blend of family/fishing/fun for us for years to come.
I can't wait until the Spring to splash my new 2009 Robalo 247 with the Yamaha 350 into the waters around Sea Isle City, New Jersey. I attached a couple of pictures I took at the dealership.
If anyone has any advice for a new owner, or any information for a new Robalo owner it would be greatly appreciated.
Take Care Everyone.
